Welcome to Congregation B'nai Tzedek
No front page content has been created yet.
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Congregation B'nai Tzedek. We are a vibrant, unique and dynamic synagogue, which is proud of the wide variety of programs and activities we offer. We are a Conservative congregation affiliated with the United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism.
Permeating the atmosphere is the warm feeling of community, evident at our worship services and in the ways that members help and care for each other in times of need. We offer excellent educational programs for both children and adults as well as a myriad of opportunities to do Tikun Olam and to come together for socializing. We are a community of communities, with many groups such as Brotherhood, Sisterhood and Hazak, and we welcome you into our family.

As we commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz, we also send out our love and best wishes to the survivors, including our own congregant Marty Weiss, pictured here.
Marty volunteers at the Holocaust Museum and is featured in a Washington Post video report, a Channel 9 news report, and and article in USA Today. Click here to view the Post video report, click here to view the Channel 9 video report and click here to read the USA Today article. Thank you Marty!
On November 20, 2014, the B'nai Tzedek Board of Directors voted to fund our innovative Community Builders program for 2 more years, through the 2016-2017 school year. The Board allocated $185,000 to fund the program for the 2015-2016 school year and $225,000 to fund the program for the 2016-2017 school year, which will permit both 50% tuition subsidies on the core day tuition to families in our preschool who are eligible and become Community Builders (in exchange for a commitment to perform 10 hours/month of meaningful activities within CBT), and overall reductions in tuition and fees for all families for the next two school years. For further information, please contact the synagogue office or the preschool office. We anticipate commencing registration for the 2015-2016 school year in late December, at which time we will share preliminary tuition pricing. We are very excited about the continuation of this new initiative and hope our current families will help spread the word to friends and family.
